12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter where the very dark brown body was opaque and topped by a short head that soon reduced to a thin ring and partial top coat.

Aroma: pleasing but hard to describe beyond some chocolate and faint banana.

Flavor: chocolate, bananas in various stages of ripeness, and baked bread made with dark roasted grains - i that order of strength. Lightly and appropriately sweet: likely to be less sweet than most will expect.

Feel: very smooth; creamy and soft but with good light carbonation.

This beer had a nice dark look to it and smelled of bananas and chocolate. However, I did not like the taste. I did not taste chocolates or bananas, just a bitter malt. I would not drink again.

I didn't know what exactly to expect from this beer, but I did expect to at least taste banana or chocolate. I tasted neither. It tasted more like a typical stout, rich and a little bitter. Not a bad beer, but disappointing nonetheless.

Tastes like those banana candies you get from the vending machine for a quarter. Way too artificial tasting.
